Endline results are now available for the Urban Health Initiative (UHI) in Uttar Pradesh, India. The endline survey, conducted from December 2013 to July 2014, was implemented by the Measurement, Learning & Evaluation (MLE) Project in four core intervention cities and two delayed intervention cities. The goal of the endline survey was to measure programmatic impact of UHI’s family planning and reproductive health interventions. Data for the household survey were collected from a sample of 14,043 women interviewed at endline. Additionally, MLE conducted a rigorous service delivery point survey, auditing 741 health facilities and 441 pharmacies and interviewing both providers and clients.

  • By endline, all cities measured showed a significant increase in the use of modern family planning (FP) methods, between five and ten percentage points.
  • Between 89 and 95 percent of women in all cities reported being satisfied regarding their FP needs.
  • Awareness and attitudes of FP also increased in most cities.
